April – round up.

Not a bad month, very changeable but some interesting highlights, some seen, some missed (flippin Hoopoes !). Now if only the weather would settle down it could be an excellent May to look forward to.

Radipole – Garganey

No sign of the Hoopoe reported on Sunday at Lodmoor, in fact no sign of anything at Lodmoor, the birds had flown. Meanwhile at Radipole a pair of Garganey were looking very settled as they dozed in the sun.

Studland bay – Common Sandpiper

There has been a surge of Common Sandpipers migrating through this week. I disturbed this one while photographing the Mediterranean gulls, despite its alarmed piping it soon settled down again.
